Program



Imagine Oz, after Dorothy and things are a little…complicated.

From the creative minds of program coordinator Marc Sylvester and writer/storyteller Wayne Harris, comes a story of a quite different Emerald City featuring the music of Pink Floyd and Radiohead.

The Scarecrow is in charge and things are very different, but one truth remains the same…"Be careful what you wish for."

The 2014 Colts present...Dark Side of the Rainbow, an ambitious step into the integration of theatre and the pageantry arts. We invite audiences throughout the land to join us on this journey of discovery. 

Melding narrative within a musical landscape, the Colts approach the creation of their program as an “Orwellian” cinematic musical.

Utilizing a full complement of brass and percussion, along with color guard interpreting iconic rock albums The Dark Side of the Moon, OK Computer, and Pablo Honey...a single actor…on a very large stage, gives a classic soliloquy with inspirations from Shakespeare to Roger Waters to Radiohead.

Veteran arrangers Chuck Naffier (brass) and David Nelson (percussion), working hand in hand with storyteller Wayne Harris, coupled with the vision of Marc Sylvester, create a story that will challenge our usual expectations of a drum and bugle corps show.

Mail Drops

Please remember NOT to have anyone send anything via UPS, Federal Express, or any other carrier except the US POSTAL SERVICE. Also, never have anything sent directly to our housing site. The school secretary will think it is the new textbook the teacher ordered, and put it in the school warehouse until fall.

Address all mail as follows:

GENERAL DELIVERY
HOLD FOR COLTS DRUM & BUGLE CORPS

MAIN POST OFFICE (except Muncie)

There will be an additional drop or two when we have housing locations completely confirmed. Send something every time! And pass these addresses around to friends and family, too!

Mail early to ensure arrival. Express Mail can provide guaranteed delivery times in a pinch. Consider Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes for heavier "care packs" although Priority Mail generally does not save time over First Class mail. 

Packages should be shipped First Class, not Parcel Post.
